Relying on the photographs, reporting and video in the mainstream media can give you a false idea about the marches and demonstrations against white supremacists and Nazi sympathizers in San Francisco and Berkeley last weekend.

Leaked emails show that white terrorist groups planned violence in advance of August 12 in Charlottesville. They planned on inciting racial violence and hatred. They even planned on driving motor vehicles into the crowd demonstrating against hatred and white nationalism. Where are the federal indictments of these white terrorists for conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to incite racial violence and hatred. Where are the indictments of the leaders and organizers?

What Gary Cohn, Steven Mnuchin and Jared Kushner did - or, rather, what they didn't do - is a shanda. They'll know what that means, but, for the uninitiated, shanda is Yiddish for shame, disgrace. All three let it be known through anonymous friends and colleagues that they are disturbed and distressed by what Trump said after the white terrorist demonstration and attack in Charlottesville. But not in public.
